Georgia has had several defections/injuries to its offensive line since last season and may be short on depth, but according to the ESPN Scouts Inc. staff, the Bulldogs enter the 2011 season with two of the highest-rated NFL draft eligible offensive linemen in college football.
The Scouts Inc. guys have Ben Jones as the top-rated center in the 2012 draft and Cordy Glenn as the top-rated guard in the 2012 draft. Glenn will play left tackle for the Bulldogs this season.
The SEC's top-rated tackle, according to Scouts Inc., is Auburn's Brandon Mosley. The only other draft-eligible SEC offensive lineman that received a draftable grade was Alabama center William Vlachos.
Hard to believe that Alabama's Barrett Jones, Ole Miss' Bradley Sowell and Kentucky's Larry Warford were not on that list.
Alabama's Trent Richardson is the top-rated running back, according to Scouts Inc. Arkansas' Knile Davis, who will miss this season with an ankle injury, is the No. 3-rated running back. Tennessee's Tauren Poole and Ole Miss' Brandon Bolden are also in the top 10.
South Carolina's Alshon Jeffery is the No. 2-rated receiver nationally behind Oklahoma State's Justin Blackmon. Arkansas' Greg Childs is No. 9, Arkansas' Joe Adams No. 15, Alabama's Marquis Maze No. 18 and Arkansas' Jarius Wright No. 28.
